    Default Who's keeping their JB 4.0.1 3GS?
    Just curious who is keeping their FW on 4.0.1 and JB. ive seen a couple posts with people staying away from it. Is it really that bad? Should i go back to 3.1.3 JB?

    With the new bootrom on 3gs is jailbreakme.com the only way?

    thanks

    Default I'm still iffy about 4.0...
    I actually don't know if i'm gonna stay on 4.0. The BATTERY DRAIN is absolutely killing me. I have to tote around my Blackberry cause I know my 3Gs gonna die quick. I've ended all running apps in sbsettings along with multitasking. Also turned off push, ssh, and wifi to help consume some battery but just ain't working. 4.0 to me is GARBAGE!!! I wish i would've stayed on 3.1.3. Don't know if its the Jailbreak or Unlock that did it, and I see numerous people here complaining of the battery drain issue!!

    Did you edit the host file to be poin to cydia server right and download the fw 3.1.3 ?

  11. #11
    yes, this is what it looks like.

    # For example:
    #
    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    ::1 localhost
    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

    cydia states this..

    This device has SHSs on file for iPhone OS / iOS: 3.1.3, 4.0, 4.0.1

    Now that 4.0.2 is out, if I have a 3GS with 3.1.2 on it and I want to jailbreakme, how do I restore to 4.0.1 (I want to wipe the phone and start fresh). I downloaded the 4.0.1 firmware but iTunes eventually gets an unknown error 3194 when I do a shift-restore.

    Apple stopped signing 4.0.1 two hours ago. So unless you have shsh's for 4.0.1 your too late.

    I've got another 3GS running 4.0.1 and jailbroken as Cydia should have stored the SHSH for. Can I use that and if so, how?

    No, shsh's are device specific.

    I have a JB/UL 3GS I use on T-Mobile. Battery life has been quite good for me, but I am pro-active.

    One of the Cydia apps I really like is SBSettings. When I am putting the iPhone in my holster, I launch SBSettings and turn EVERYTHING off...WIFI, Bluetooth, Data, 3G,Tethering,..everything. It is simply a telephone (imagine that ?) on my hip.
